The Households of Bethany celebrated a festive Christmas! Each year there is an angel tree where staff and friends of Bethany Life take a resident's name and purchase a gift for them. 

It was a magical time with Pastor David Burling reading from Luke and singing Christmas songs.

Olivia Fox, one of our life enrichment staff members said it best: “Seeing the magic in their eyes as they open presents that they never expected to receive is incredible. Watching those who can no longer find the words to converse but know all the words to the Christmas songs Pastor Dave plays for them brings tears to everyone’s eyes. I’m so grateful for this job.”
